As we know, this is a statewide election. On the top of this year’s voting ballot you will see a resolution to do away with the elected position of Town of Ellicottville Highway Superintendent. With all of the schooling available, County Highway Department, adjoining Highway Supervisors, and help of salespeople that work for the different companies that process road material, this wealth of knowledge will continue to advise any question a new Town of Ellicottville Superintendent would have.

I feel very strongly that this position should remain an elected position and that politics have no place in the Town of Ellicottville Highway Division.

I would urge all voters in the Town and Village of Ellicottville to vote “no” and make sure that you check the top of your ballot for this issue.
